Jozi…you have a love-hate relationship with her looming buildings, buzzing (or rather stand-still) traffic and vibrant people. The Big Smoke is filled with reasons to stay and love the city. You love your work, your friends and so much of the vibe of this city. But sometimes when it becomes too much, Johannesburg needs an antidote. What better cure for the kryptonite of tall metal buildings than the welcoming green of a lush forest?
Acrobranch offers you three amazing forest retreats in Gauteng where you can play and go back to all the wild adventure of forest fun.
Zip-lining is an activity for the whole family. A way to be outdoors whilst doing exercise in an exciting and adventurous way. Swinging from tree to tree gets the adrenaline pumping and sends waves of excitement down your spine! Continue reading
Corporate Functions can be many things. They can be inspiring and great for company spirit. Corporate functions can be relaxing and fun, a great stress-reliever. At best a good Corporate Function offers a company the chance to do a 180-degree turn around in morale and relationships. Don’t miss the opportunity to bring your employees together for a day full of fun and even friendship.
Acrobranch is an Outdoor Adventure Experience in lush forests. We have Courses – in Pretoria, Cape Town, Centurion, Johannesburg and the Garden Route – which take your company into the great outdoors to experience something fresh and new. Our courses offer thrilling zip lines, obstacle courses high up in the trees and plenty of opportunity for teamwork and fun.
“A good team needs three things: the right people, the right spirit, and a couple of inside jokes.”
Too true, a great corporate team is made up of the best people for the job, a spirit of collaboration, encouragement and positivity and yes, a sense of humour that connects every member of the team.
But what happens when your team of excellent people is running low on spirit and their sense of humour has been strained by tough deadlines, or tougher yet, a shortage of projects coming in? Continue reading

I recently spent the afternoon acrobranching in Constantia with my mom. We started on the blue course, which is meant to be the hardest course, and then we realised just how scared of heights we were and we moved over to the less high, yellow course.
This was perfect for both of us because we could still do the ‘big’ zip line at the end which was the most fun part!
Eskom announced that they will again be rolling out loadshedding and most cities in South Africa will be affected by their loadshedding schedules.
While it can be terribly frustrating to be cut off and in the dark, the best way to deal with it is to make alternative and fun plans that don’t involve switches and lights.
Take our word for it, now is a good time to stock up on candles, buy a torch and a car cellphone charger if you don’t have one and not fill up your fridge as the food may go off during long loadsheddings. For evenings, a braai, a candlelit dinner and a good book are all recommended and can turn black-outs into romantic, or at least unusual, experiences reminiscent of bygone times.
We have looked into the latest research on Fear of Heights and we’re happy that our Outdoor Activity Parks qualify as a perfect suggestion for beating Acrophobia.
Team Building is a gift to employees that, if planned wisely, can keep on giving back for years to come. Employees appreciate some time out of the office, getting to know each other, and by teaming departments that might not normally work closely, trust grows which in turn leads to increased productivity.
We decided to dig deeper into the secrets of successful team building ideas and embark on a search for the Perfect Team Building activity.
It’s often wise to take a step back in order to jump further, and for your team to feel truly appreciated, it’s important to clock everybody off for the duration of the team building. Make it a whole day affair… The lost time will quickly be made up for through heightened motivation.
Being Outdoors and reconnecting with nature in beautiful surroundings will lift everyone’s spirit and inspire productive new ideas at work.
Make it Fun
Advertising Legend David Ogilvy famously said :
“When people aren’t having any fun, they seldom produce good work.”
Team Building Activities play an essential part to encourage a company culture where employees can let their hair down around each other and enjoy their working environment. Continue reading
